Completely Renovated (2015) 3br/2ba With Direct Frontage On Lake Skegemog
About Kirsten Horton
A bit about us, the owners. This cottage is owned by two couples (Jason/Kirsten & Jeff/Jamie) with deep ties to Northern Michigan. Jeff, Kirsten and Jason all grew up in Traverse City, while Jamie spent summers up north with her family. Kirsten and Jason still live in Traverse City. We purchased and renovated this for the purpose of enjoying summers on the lake, but realized that we won't be able to use it every week in the summer because we are stuck working for a living still. So, we have decided to rent it out for a few select weeks in the summer for others to enjoy. We hope you enjoy your time on the lake as much as we do.

Why Kirsten Horton chose Williamsburg
This is one of the newest, freshest, most convenient cottages you will find on Elk, Torch or Skegemog. For those unfamiliar with Lake Skegemog, it is the quieter of the three, shallower and calmer. Due to it's location and depth, the lake is also warmer than the others throughout the summer, routinely getting to above 70 degrees.

Best summer vacation spot
This is the 3rd or 4th time we've stayed here and it's become a highlight of each year. The home is beautiful and well stocked. Kristen is easy to work with and always just a phone call away. The lake and surrounding community offers a ton of things to do. We really can't recommend it enough.
Enjoyable cottage !
We had a good week in this well updated , comfortable , cottage on Lake Skegemog.
Great trip before the 4th
We came in at the end of June and had a blast. The place was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We even had two young children and there were kids toys, inflatables and more to keep them entertained.
Kirsten made an effort to make sure we were entertained by texting us ideas for a rainy day, and much more. She's very on top of the guests need requests and was very responsive.
The lake was calm and warm enough to swim in at the end of June. Neighboring lakes (Torch and Elk) not so much for us, but maybe for some.
I brought more stuff then we needed and she had everything clean and ready for us. It was such a relief after our drive up from Ohio.
Additionally, the neighbors were very helpful and nice. We rented a boat and the neighbor took the time to rig up a chain system to attach to the buoy quickly and easily. They also gave great recommendations on the area.
We are looking forward to a trip again next year.
Thank you, Kirsten, for the hospitality
Best Family weekend ever!
Look no further, this is your place! Kirsten the owner is awesome, the place has everything you need including amazing neighbors Phil and Suzie, they are like instants family. The view is amazing, fire pit is perfect and a great boat ride to Torch Lake or to Elk Lake, but Lake Skegemog is perfect! We will return for sure, best hands down!
We do have awesome neighbors. Look forward to having you again!
Fantastic Getaway Location
Perfect getaway cottage. Kirsten is great to deal with and the property is clean and very comfortable. The property has a great back yard, fire pit, and lake access to Skegemog. If you rent a boat head up the river to Torch for the best lake experience in Michigan. Meijer is right up the road along with great Golf courses and the casino if you are feeling lucky!
Lots of golf courses to choose from within a short drive and casino after makes it an awesome location. Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Kristin is Wonderful..Very professional and we kept in Constant Contact.. The house is spotless and the Location is Breathtaking...I will be back :) Sherry Vitale
Best part of the cottage is sitting under the covered deck looking out over the water. Happy you and your family had a wonderful time.
This cottage is perfectly located to allow for enjoyment that Northern Michigan has to offer. Conveniently located close to golf courses, wineries, downtown Traverse City, and the Turtle Creek casino. Lake Skegemog has the benefits of being on the ‘Chain of Lakes’ without the bustle and congestion of Torch or Elk Lake.
You can access the Torch River & Sand Bar, Elk Rapids and lakeside dining. Bring your SUP or kayak & enjoy sunrise over the lake or explore the nature preserve and the bald eagle nests directly across the lake.
